SETTING POSITIVE EXAMPLES FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW (Edited 29th July 2017) (by benaiah juma).
This life today is filled with evil and righteousness because somebody somewhere set an example for others to follow. A lot of people and their eternal habitations have been seriously affected by people who set a bad example. We as Christians are taught by our lord and savior Jesus Christ to live on this earth by displaying positive examples for others to follow.
It is shameful when a Christian is living in sin and doing deeds that are evil infront of everyone because a person who looks up to them who is a new Christian, might think those deeds are acceptable and therefore they can be led astray. God does not appreciate people who cause the little ones to stumble. The little ones are the ones who believe in the lord Jesus Christ and are weak in faith. The lord Jesus Christ told us to shine with our good deeds so that the inhabitants of the earth may glorify our father who is in heaven. When you live in the light and walk in the light, people who are in darkness may marvel and those whom the father has drawn to our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ will emulate your character.
We are told by the bible not to be influenced by the world, but we should be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we can prove what is right and wrong and what is acceptable in the eyes of our lord Jesus Christ. We as Christians are to emulate Jesus Christ and conform to his standards. Jesus Christ is the perfect example to follow if you want to live a Godly life. The lord Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of our faith. You may be looking for an example to follow; I am here to tell you that the lord Jesus Christ is the perfect example to follow for he is perfect and holy.
We can live positively on this earth by living according to the Holy Scriptures. When you see the needy help them, when an opportunity presents itself to do good, do it for the glory of God. The word of God tells us that whoever knows how to do good and does it not to him it is sin. Some of the deeds that we can participate to show positive examples to others include, helping the needy, visiting the sick in the hospitals and paying their bills if they are unable to, encouraging others, talking with gentleness, visiting those in prisons, pleading the cause of the widows and the fatherless, preaching, evangelising and any good work that will bear good fruits for Jesus Christ.
We as Christians should not be influenced by the world but we should make it a habit to live according to the word of God. We should refuse to be influenced by evil and the wicked but we should overcome evil with good. Only by living positively and becoming channels of righteousness, only then will we be acknowledged as children of the Most High God.
Be a channel of humility where there is pride, be a channel of love where there is hatred, be a channel of forgiveness where there is unforgiveness, be a channel of righteousness where there is evil, and finally be a channel wisdom where there is ignorance. Let our light so shine so that our father in heaven may be glorified through us. Brethren in Christ Jesus, do not listen and look up to people who are living contrary to the will of God to emulate their character, but let us be doers of the word of God and let us set positive examples for others to follow for the well being of our souls and others.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Be blessed In Jesus name.
